Snowy day.

This morning I went to Brent Cross (somewhere in London Zone-3 North) for a volunteering work. It was supposed to be a fun job in giving free services in helping the shoppers to pump up their tires. But heavy snow hit London. It DSC_0029was quite disappointing to know that it affected my lovely volunteering activity on Saturday.

At the same time, I heard that many of my friends’ outbound flights from London were cancelled due to the severe snow storm. Looks like the weather isn’t favourable for any travels on Winters holiday. I hope my trip in January will not get such misfortune. PRAY HARD!!! And yup, the pictures shown in this post is the underground station in Brent Cross. Covered with snow.


This movie was inspired by real incident happened in Pennsylvania where a runaway freight train. The real incident happened on the 15th May 2001 where an unmanned train, CSX 8888 portrayed as the AWVR777 (nicknamed Triple sevens) headed from Stanley Yards in the direction of Stanton at speed of about 71 miles per hour or equivalent to 114KM/h without an air brake. The freight train carrying about 45 cars, with only 22 loaded cars. Unfortunately, 8 of the cars contains hazardous material, molten phenol (reported for about 80 Gallon). In the movie, it was shown that the main focus of the mission to shop this train from passing Stanton. This is due to the extremely small radii curve rail track that might cause the freight to turned over and hit the fuel storage next to it.

So the most exciting part of the movie is when the train approach the curve at Stanton. It was shown in the movie that the engineer suggested to use the Dynamic Braking system using another locomotive to engage from the back of the unmanned train. Dynamic braking is a system of converting the traction motors to generators to produce voltage and current, which will then be dissipated as heat through the resistors in the braking grid.

Well for the rest of the story, watch it for yourself by the links down there.

Internship: End

Yesterday was my last day of internship with a consulting firm. Huh.. what a relief. I learned a lot from this internship. Nothing engineering though but I think it will came in handy in the future. Now is the time for me to start do some heavy duty shopping and packing my bag – my flight back to the UK is 2 day from now. Damn man… I want more holiday T.T.

Stupid Restaurant in Bayu Puteri Apartment, Petaling Jaya

Everything has been good today until dinner time. I was planning to go out to pack some food but it was raining. Well, I don't have a car only a motorbike. So I decided to eat at the restaurant (I wouldn't call it a restaurant - cause it is sell shitty food and charged people like mad ass) in the condominium (Bayu Puteri Apartment, Petaling Jaya) I am staying right now.  I entered the "restaurant" and it is basically quite empty (as I expected) and there are not much food around. So I asked for a plate of rice and chose a drumstick cooked with chilly and a Neslo drink (mixture of chocolate and coffee).

Expecting it to be at very low price, I was dumbfounded when he told me that it cost me RM 6.50. So I was quite shocked and asked about the price of a rice + a skinny chicken drumstick.. That guy give me a fierce look and said "rice + chicken is RM4 and the drink is RM2.50." I was like speechless man. This is ridiculous!! Really? I think this shop can just go to hell. Charging the customer with such price will only pissed the customer off (that's me). Now I understand why this restaurant is so empty. 

I think the owner of this "restaurant" doesn't have a brain in his or her head. Really man, if I were to run a restaurant, I will put some efforts into it. At least make your food better before you dare selling it. You readers might not get the idea unless I post up some pictures of this place. With the thousands of people living in this condominium, the business of this restaurant could explode like a big bang. Sigh, no point saying it to those shit head. I don't think I will be buying anything from that bloody "restaurant" again unless I have no other choice. 

-Angry and disgusted Customer-

Bad Day

Today is a bad bad day. During day time, I did something wrong and get scolded by my supervisor due to some mistakes I  did. I was asked to do a knowledge transfer to one of the client at the project site by giving verbal presentation and send the relevant file to the person via email. In the process of sending the file, I had to ensure two main persons in the CC list. Guess who, one of them must be my supervisor and another is the person's supervisor. So that's about the first part of my bad day.

The second part of the bad day begins right after I packed my chicken rice. I nearly got knocked by a car trying to come out from a parking lot when there were ants lot of cars moving right behind the car - of course that included my poor motorbike. I would blame the stupid driver instead of the car. The butt of the car just zoom out, nearly knocked me down. I was lucky enough to speed up in  time to avoid the car ass. It was bad adrenaline rush. Really lucky in an unlucky day.

That's it. Bad day. Wonder why? A HA... Today is the Ghost Festival eve. May be that had something to do with all these unlucky events of the day.

God Bless Me!!

High School Friends reunion 2010

Just yesterday, I met up and had dinner with some of my old friends at Full House, in Sunway Giza Damansara. Interesting place but food were bad and small portion. Had some food and chit chat about the past. It was a small reunion cause there were some people missing due to unavailability. One of them went back to the UK early and one of the had family dinner at home. But it was still quite happening :P. The fun part started after the dinner. We went to the floor above in Full House and tried some very old school clothing for pictures.  Ha Ha after all these years we were still able to pose like when we were in MRSM. Anyway, that's about the posing part. Next thing was we went to some cafe called the M.BUJI. This restaurant is named after the Mount Buji in Africa. Why? I dunno why but foods sold  inside this shop is not nice either. Maybe Africa food is not suitable for my malaysia taste :P. We chatted for like a few hours in the cafe. Apparently, we realised there were a bunch of ladies at their 30's chatting and laughing at high pitch. Ha ha, so Val was like suggesting to laugh louder than them. A lot of reminiscing and also future baby jokes (MAKAN and MAKAN).. Really enjoyed it. I wonder when will the be next meeting in the future. Next year or I don't know.. OR may be after everyone had families and bring some children for some kind of showcase :P. Hope the days will come again. Well that's about yesterday and now moving forward, I need to clean my room and get something washed up and do some work. Am not looking forward for tomorrow :( Don't really like working life.. 5 weeks to go.. Come on I can do this.

My future in Career?

I am currently a Mechanical Engineering student in Imperial College London. It sometimes makes me think back why I choose Mechanical Engineer as my future career. Why? This is one question that I could not answer till now. There are many possibilities, for example, I follow my brother's footstep or friends' influences or I just take a course that I thought it's cool. Well, I really thought Engineers are cool. Now that I am a second year student, which means 2 more years to go be become a fresh graduated engineer. Problem is, what is my future in engineering working world.

The one thing I am very curious about is, do I get to choose what job I want ? Well that's depends :P. I need to impress many people which I don't at the moment. And will I apply whatever shit that I learned in this course in my future? Many students from engineering background diverted into banking or any other career but not engineering. I found that's pretty sad. Why do I say so? They could just take banking course or Finance course or any Business related courses for that banking job. Why suffer 4 years of engineering and don't use it?

In the UK, engineering firms develop something big. So I thought that would be the case in my country. BUT, I just found out that they don't really do development but maintenance, which equals boring job. Sigh, Now that I feel less motivated to continue study after thinking of the future I will have soon. Pray hard and work hard...

Till next time.

Holiday Part 2

I've just finished 3 weeks of internship with my sponsor company. I was being placed in one of the Oil Palm Mill Factory in Negeri Sembilan and introduced to the operation and management of the factory. I was exposed to three part of the operations. Firstly, quality control - I was just playing around with chemicals and nothing else. Pretty boring job I would say. Secondly, boiler control room - Terrible place to be, why? There are too many people smoking in an air conditioned room without any window. Instead of a boiler room I would rename it to "smoking room". And there is only one computer in this showing the pressure and flow rates of the boiler. In the last week, I was placed I the workshop. Here is the place I learned most of the things that’s related to my Mechanical Engineering course. Not that much though but a lot more than those previous two weeks. I was being introduced to welding procedures and also some safety aspect. I was assigned to a mechanical fitter as an assistant in pipe maintenance. So you can actually imagine me holding nut and bolt and spanner. 3 weeks long in this factory was torturous, what if 3 years? I just can't imagine that. So that's about my first internship in this summer.

My internship does not end as yet. I somehow manage to get another internship in a consultancy firm in KL. How wonderful? I don't have to be in the "jungle" but a city of everything ( at least in Malaysia, KL is everything:P). This internship has no relation to my current study but I think I've learned a lot judging from the pass 3 weeks. Not Thermodynamic or Fluid Mechanic but more like people behaviour of all position in an organisation. Having to be exposed to this kind of experience really opened up my eyes to the working world. Seen stuff like problems, politics, work stress, Lady Boss and many more. I still have around 5 to 6 weeks to go before I fly back to continue my boring course. 

Oh this holiday has been just about working and working and working. Haven't been spending much time with family members :( I miss my granny and grandpa and aunty and uncles and oh oh my cousin is getting married this coming September. So that's quite an even for me. So that’s all for today.

Holiday Part 1

Now that holiday is here, I start to feel bored after 2 weeks back in Malaysia. It is good to have something to do  at all time. Fortunately, I managed to get an internship with a Oil Palm factory. More like doing some practical work in mechanical engineering field. I hope I will learn much from this internship. The thing is, I will be deprived from the so-called-fast internet (streamyx). I will have to use dail-up internet (TM-Net) connection in which the speed is slower than anything you've seen before.... And travelling 35 KMs from my home to the factory everyday by my brother's aged motorbike is a bit of a pain. Oh well, I shall not complain so much for now as the internship will only start next Tuesday. Praying that I will survive the first week of it.. Good luck to me

Exam time is here

It has been a year long and it finally reach a time when I need to start crushing my brain and reformat my memory to be accustomed for the year end examination. It is my second year now. And the examination is just around the corner. The atmosphere around Imperial College changed from cheerful to serious. You can actually feel the intensity and the concentration of students sitting numbly trying to understand what the hell the lecturer taught in the past 6 months. Need to focus now.. All the best for all the students in the world that are preparing hard for their upcoming exam.. Good luck!!

Dancing day..

Recently I've been dancing quite a bit.. Annoyingly I neglect my work load and now they are piling up on top of my head.. Just 3 more days to focus on my upcoming dancing competition then I will be able to get my grip on my studies.. Yesterday alone I skipped one class but dance from 2 pm to 11 pm with different dancing partners.. And I had just had my lab this morning.. I think I need some rest.. My stress level start to increase proportionally with the increase of my work load.. I need loads of energy and less distraction.. Gambateh .. I will manage.. Good luck to me.. No one but me can help me.

Acoustic Amplifier for iPhone

Yesterday in my dance practice, one of my friends showed me a very interesting device that could amplify the music, alarm or any sound from the iPhone. It is really interesting. I checked it out and found out it. It is a product by GRIFFIN Technology.
The picture below shows how iPhone is placed attached to the AirCurve device and could be amplified to ~10dB. aircurve_2 It was one piece of well design engineering application that could make a lot of money out of it. I am very impressed.
You could even charge and sync at the same time using Griffin dock cable or the charge and sync cable that come with the iPhone while playing music.aircurve_charging I’ve just ordered one from the (around £10 to £12)and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

Bad luck

Today wake up at around 1045 am and head off to Union Dining Hall for some MJ M Night choreography to do. Ended at 2 pm and stayed in there practicing cha cha and jive dances. Pretty worn out. The I tried making a MJ spine and pose with the music sounds like " You can hit by DUM DUM ... You can strucked by DUM. . A smooth criminal !!! Awww" (shout out loud ) and that is when I spinned and my specs fell and cracked on the floor..

Then I was like.. What the hell!!

This is my broken specs... Sad

Progress Test Short Notice

Progress test short notice

This email was sent by my department around noon time today informing the second year students that the progress test next week was reschedule to tomorrow. It created a big chaos to my study plan and worst, I haven’t started revision on Material (the test tomorrow). So I need loads of lucks!!!
